You and your friends and family are invited to a series of exciting events next week (17 - 21 Oct) for

A CUT A SCRATCH A SCORE: a comic opera in three parts

A major new performance and exhibition created by two rising stars of the British art scene David Barnett, Sam Belinfante and the acclaimed artist Bruce McLean, commissioned by the Cooper Gallery, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design. These three artists have been collaborating over the last three years towards larger scale cross disciplinary projects and we are very pleased to be involved in the creation of their most ambitious project to date.

A CUT A SCRATCH A SCORE will also feature the renowned Mezzo-soprano Lore Lixenberg and performance artist Adeline Bourret with 60 musicians from three local choirs and the Dundee Drum Academy.


A CUT A SCRATCH A SCORE: a comic opera in three parts is a distinctive new performance and exhibition in three different public spaces in Dundee. Combining opera, comedy, drawings, sculpture and moving images, this daring work will act as a stage for the city and its people, upon which the comedies of contemporary life will strut, turn and take a bow.
